Study conducted according to internationally accepted testing guidelines. Although the values recorded are outside of the applicability domain for the test method, the results can be considered as reliable and representative for the tested substance. The study outcomes are indicative of a high affinity with the water phase, respect than the octanol one.

Executive summary:

Partition coefficient was determined by means of shake flask method as per recommendations of OECD 107. Partition coefficient (P) is defined as the ratio of the equilibrium concentrations of a dissolved substance in a two-phase system consisting in two largely immiscible solvents.

Study conducted at 20 °C and at pH of 6.41.
